The Comet Athletic Club is sponsoring its 13th annual Sportsmen’s Raffle to raise academic scholarships for the student athletes of Mayville State University. A total of 50 guns will be raffled at an event planned for Saturday evening, Sept. 14, 2019. Ticket holders will have a one-in-ten chance of winning a gun, and need not be present to win. Raffle tickets are on sale now for $100 each.

The $100 ticket buys a chance to win a gun and admission to the raffle event that will be held at the Mayville (N.D.) Armory on Sept. 14. Doors open at 5 p.m. Dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m., and the 50-gun giveaway will begin at 7 p.m. The evening will include door prizes, cash bar, and many side raffles. Valley Plains Equipment of Hunter, N.D. has for the eighth time donated a John Deere gun safe that will be among the many side raffle prizes available this year.

The Farmers Bowl Silent Auction is back and will be held in conjunction with the Sportsmen’s Raffle event on Sept. 14. Those who wish to attend the event, but who do not wish to participate in the 50-gun giveaway, may purchase meal-only tickets for $25 each. The meal is included for those who purchase tickets for the gun raffle. Bidding in the silent auction will begin when the doors open at 5 p.m.

Raffle tickets for the 50-gun giveaway and meal-only event tickets are available at the MSU Foundation office and from Comet Athletic Club board members.
